    CD Stuck in Player

    Went out last night for a wonderful drive. When i tried to eject my CD from the in-dash unit, it would not eject. Tried multiple times, turned ignition on and off, but still does not eject. Anyone have any ideas on an at home fix, otherwise it is off to the dealer. BTW I'm driving an 05 C2S with Nav

    Thanks for your help.

    Same thing happened to my 2005 Caynenne (same system). After trying everything I could think of I was prepared to take it in to the dealer the next day. Tried it when I got in the car the next day and it popped right out. Others have done the same thing. Hope it works for you.

    Happened once to me on my '06 C2S. I think I turned ignition off, then back on, then turned stereo on while holding the eject buton down and it finally spit it out.

    Re: CD Stuck in Player

    Not a good sign. Mine started acting up and would be very fussy about ejecting, finally would not eject.

    My PCM went on the fritz, crashed Nav and radio repeatedly and eventually and had to be replaced under warrenty.

    One thing you should watch out for? When the CD is stuck in the unit over many days, at least in my case it totally drained the battery and ruined it (was also replaced under warrenty).

    You can try yanking the fuse for the PCM and that would make it reset/reboot itself (if that's what it does). Keep in mind these things are no longer a simple stand-alone CD player, the PCM is a computer with many functions.


    Re: CD Stuck in Player

    I would detach a lead cable from the battery for 3 seconds, I supose this is easier than trying to find the right fuse to remove. This worked fine in case of my satnav disc stuck in my dvd drive.

    Re: CD Stuck in Player

    Mine did the same. It eventually spat it out on day 2. I tried a gain and it refused to work at all. Then it spat it out after 2 days. Then they changed the unit. Not everyhting worked afterwards because of the wrong codes (Sprot Chrono stuff) but in the end it was fixed.

    Re: CD Stuck in Player

    Just switch it off and push the eject button.

    Re: CD Stuck in Player

    Same thing. Try saying something about how much you spent on the car within earshot of the CD player. It will eject the CD at some point. In the meantime, enjoy the sound of the exhaust.

    Re: CD Stuck in Player

    I had a similar problem in a previous car. I got the CD to budge by sliding ANOTHER CD in the slot, not all the way in, but enough to hit triggers, and jostle things around a bit. Simultaneously smashing the eject button. It'd always eventually spit the lodged CD out...

    P.S. I specifically decline any liability or damage potentially suffered in these efforts.

    Re: CD Stuck in Player

    Thanks for all your input. No matter what I tried, it is still stuck. I will be taking it in to the dealer for a fix.
